    Most likely retire around 36. First team football seems to keep playing from not retiring so soon

    With his stamina and strength he can play a few more years.

    His average rating is also not going down yet.

    There are some hidden attributes that come into this as well so you never know for sure. But on his profile I see that he does not have any coaching stats so he must not be ready to retire yet.

    If he is playing well for you, you can guarantee that the AI will retire him early.

    Yes no coaching stats might be a good thing and the mental side or hidden attributes must be really good he never lets me down always performs in big games Iíll probably ask someone on forum to check him on editor once he retires out of curiousity as he is my favourite defender I had on any game


    I do not like using editor because then you know the player and and can project and have a rough idea what kinda career they will have I prefer to use my own judgement and go on behaviour form and remembering big games ect

    You can offer him a coaching contract and if he is no good at coaching just take all his instructions off him in the Training menu. No guarantee or even improvement in chance to prolong his career

    thinking of doing the opposite whenever i offer a player a player coach role they always seem to retire from playing within 18 months


    was thinking just leaving him on indispensable to the club and just keep playing him might be the way to go

    Is he your captain? If not, it might help keep him interested if you made him captain.

    i used him as captain before and his influence isn't the highest and that's a really good shout it actually reminded me

    because when i did use him as captain before it did feel like it boosted my team. I use my gk as captain atm he has 18 influence but never felt fully comfortable with him and he has an erratic game 1 in every 6 or so i think changing it back to my defender next season would be best

    it's the style of play i use and he seems to work best in a 3 as the main presser on the defence with my other central defender sometimes pressing sometimes not and my sweeper on no press oh and hard tackling for him also haven't seen him get sent off yet in 5 seasons (or not that i can remember anyway)

    when i experimented with more attacking shapes or chase late in games he becomes more a liability on those settings

    Once stamina stays high, acceleration and pace don't matter much to performance

    and the intrinsic for positioning keeps increasing with the age as its an experience related attribute, so his 20 is actually becoming stronger and stronger

    An overall decline this season but still very playable also didn't protect the space in front of the defence as much and had to take him off pressing for the first time in a long time didn't want him going to far to try win the ball as he would collapse trying to get back into position

    Pace and acceleration both down to 4. Clearly still doing a decent job though.

    His averages, tackles assists and passing went up as the season went on he played a few sixes then just went on a run of 8's with very high tackling success in many matches did struggle against Dinamo and Hadjuk though but there strikers are insane and even my best defender as well as Korac had a hard time with them

    He compensates the lack of pace with an ever increasing positioning intrinsic value coming from his experience. Old great defenders like him know all the "shortcuts" in the football field. This guy doesnt need to run because just stays well positioned all the time.

    Thanks it certainly feels like something in the background of the game is enhancing him and as you explained above that makes perfect sense

    He reminds me of Jurgen Kohler on cm 00/01 played him till he was 41 and his ratings.tackles ect went up between the age of 38-40 compared to his mid 30's

    obviously i dont think Korac has nowhere near his ability level of Kohler but for the standard In croatian league he is a super defender
